Since we have a lot of new users over here I though it would be good to post this on the forum. Plus I am kind of proud of my new baby :lol: I now own a S9 and S40. The downside to both of these guns is that their finish is kind of a dull matte black that has some dark green mixed in. I always wished they had more of a Satin black finish like the M series guns. I had my S40 refinished by Mac's Shooting Irons last year. I really wanted to find a brighter more shiny finish. I have heard a ton of good things about Trip Research and their great hard chrome finish. They also have one of the fastest turn around times I have ever seen. I mailed on a Friday and got my gun back the next Saturday. The job they did on my Steyr is nothing short of spectacular!! They obviously knew what they were doing becuase they took every single bit of the slide apart and made it look like it came from the factory chromed. If you are tired of a black gun think about using TR they are one of the best. They charged me $70 for the chrome job and $10 for shipping. Here are some pics not all show the chrome some were just cool looking.
